Curve 3 Treadmill - Program and Pacer Functions
The Curve 3 Treadmill is an athlete powered treadmill with a dynamic force plate built in. It works with the same Pacer software as the Force 3 treadmill but its unique curved deck design removes the need for the athlete to be tethered. This allows for greater max velocities to be achieved and a more natural running gait.
The system is fully programmable and programs can be saved and recalled at will. This permits development of very specific continuous and interval training protocols which mimic the target sport. See an example in the video below.
The Pacer function allows athletes and coaches to save a particular run and then call it up later to act as a pacer. This means the athlete can "race" themselves, or at least their performance from say 6 months previously.
